class believes. the things that president clinton used, balanced approach. opportunity and, i thought that governor romney really didn't do anything to dissuade the general public from the view that he would like to go back to the days of the bush tax cuts for the wealthy and hope that this time, instead of growing deficits, and growing unemployment, that it grows jobs. so governor romney really needed a game changer tonight. i hate to say this but i find myself agreeing with chris christie. governor romney really needed to turn the world upside down. he really need ad game changer tonight. i think you would be sore pressed to find that magic moment that was the game-changer tonight. and, so, that was my view in watching it anyway. i also thought the president did a very good job finally nailing governor romney down to admitting he does want to turn medicare into a voucher program. i thought the president pushed back on that very effectively, when he said, hey, if you're 55 you might want to listen to this. i'm still not sure exactly what governor romney was saying about his promise o

debated in all this time. obama is really good. he did come out of nowhere. he beat the clinton machine. he did it in part in his debate, oratory. he will be strong. his one weak point is he is thin skinned. you o the press conference. if romney can manage to get under his skin in some way, that happened in 2008. one or two of the clinton debates. i think it could puncture that aura that obama had. i don't think there is any way to be decisive. one thing that is going to help romney simply being on the stage is always true of the challenger. just being on the same stage as the president instantly raises your stature. if he can hold his own and perhaps prevail to the minor extent he will reverse momentum which has been rather negative. last couple of weeks. >> bret: a.b., the -- liste listen, the economy, there are still a lot of concerns. just talking to folks in arapahoe county county there are concerns long-term and concerns about the national debt and deficit. concerns about jobs specifically in colorado. if you look at the markets, from the time the president got in office until now

[applause] why isn't that the middle class is the bird in this country? why we have so many people out of work? -- why is it that the middle cla
debate. even clinton wasn't as good as he was in other forums. the president who is a good debater but not a great debater, it's a lot of pressure on him, too. bill: usually they write about the incumbents being insulated by yes people and do not say no to the president. is that true and how does that affect a person? >> they are not used to being pushed around. a critical player on our team is the man who runs fox news. roger ails came in. he was a political strategist before he retired. and he got in the president's face. he calmed him down and told him what he had to do. the first debate we had a rally after the event. reagan needed a crowd to ref him up. we had a big rally before he was revved up and he did an effective job. bill: reagan called ails coach during those times. you work with jack kemp and huckabee. >> he was an extraordinarily talented guy and one of the great thinkers of our party. mike huckabee was perfect. he had great experience on radio. he understood that the quote -- he didn't need much help, but he was very substantive. an extraordinarily talent. the debat
